[dropcap style=”square” title=”纪”]录片《富勒的一生（A Fuller Life）》将在今年威尼斯电影节放映。
Samantha Fuller已故父亲——独立电影导演塞缪尔·富勒（Samuel Fuller）拍摄纪录片，叙述了他的电影生涯与轨迹。这部纪录片共分12章，由多位演员、导演和编剧做对白和旁述，其中包括演员James Franco、Jennifer Beals、Tim Roth、Robert Carradine、Mark Hamill、Constance Towers；导演/编剧Bill Duke、James Toback、Kelly Ward、Perry Lang、Joe Dante、Wim Wenders、Monte Hellman、Buck Henry以及William Friedkin。
Jennifer Beals旁述的章节名为《Crime Reporter（罪案记者）》，下面是这部记录片的制作花絮，也是影片导演Samantha Fuller介绍的关于父亲与JB当年的合作故事。
“第一次遇见Jennifer还是上世纪80年代后期，她的丈夫还是独立制片人Alexandre Rockwell。 那时候我全家住在巴黎，那时候他们结伴来看我们。John Cassavetes，是我父亲和他们的朋友， 正是他介绍了大家的相识。John邀请我父亲在Alex的电影《Sons》里饰演一个角色。 起初John打算自己来演的，但遗憾那时候他患了重病，不得不放弃演出。那就是Jennifer和我父亲第一次一起共事。
我父母和Alex以及Jennifer逐渐发展出一段恒久的友谊。 不久之后，他们开始筹拍下一部电影《Madonna and the Dragon》（又名《Tinikling ou ‘La Madonne et le Dragon》）。我母亲和我都相当赞同邀请光彩照人的Jennifer担任女主角。 而她也同意了参演里面那位年轻的摄影记者，而我的父亲也就扮演了她坚定的编辑同事。我想他们之间的戏是整部电影最棒的部分。
当我斟酌找谁为《A Fuller Life》作旁述的时候，要追忆父亲崭露头角充当“罪案记者”的往事，这个人非Jennifer莫属。我起初计划找男性的朋友来朗读父亲的那些话，但随着考虑越深，我就越感到父亲会更想让Jennifer而非其他人来做旁述。她也毫不犹豫地答应了我，而她在里面的表现也一如既往的出色。
我们才华横溢的忠实伙伴——爱尔兰人Seamus McGarvey是那天的摄影师。那时候是年末圣诞节前后了，也是我母亲和Jennifer的生日的日子，拍摄过后那是一个相当美妙的庆祝时节。 ”
《Madonna and the Dragon》于1990年上映，是Samuel Fuller的最后一部电影作品。故事说的是一位女摄影记者在20年代80年代菲律宾内战时期报道新闻，拍下了当地士兵杀害无辜平民的照片。在图片新闻要出版的时候，有的人想让它成为头条新闻，而有的人却想利用它达到宣传目的。
《富勒的一生（A Fuller Life）》的宣传片
The first time I met Jennifer was in the late 80′s when she was married to independent filmmaker, Alexandre Rockwell. At that time my family was living in Paris, and they came to visit us. My father had been recommended by their mutual friend, John Cassavetes to play a part in Alex’s movie Sons. Initially, John was supposed to play the part himself, but sadly by that point in his life he was too ill to perform. This was the first time Jennifer shared screen credit with my father. A few years later, Alex
featured Sam in another movie called Somebody to Love.
My parents formed a lasting friendship with Alex and Jennifer. It was not long after they met that my father began planning his next movie called The Madonna and the Dragon, released in English-speaking countries under the title “Tinikling”. My mother and I supported his idea of casting radiant Jennifer for the female lead. Jennifer had agreed to play a young photojournalist and my father cast himself as her tough-loving editor. I think that their scenes together are the best part of that movie.
When it came time to think of readers for A FULLER LIFE, well, it was clear that it had to be her reading Sam’s chapter about his days as a budding crime Reporter. I initially planned to only ask men to read my father’s words, but the more I thought about it, the more I felt that my father would have wanted it to be Jennifer reading this rather than anyone else. She accepted without hesitation, and showed up looking as sharp as ever.
Our talented loyal Irish mate, Seamus McGarvey, was our cinematographer that day. It was around the holiday season as well as both my mother’s and Jennifer’s birthdays, a fine time to celebrate after a splendid shoot.
